Chichester’s businesses are currently facing the biggest challenge they have ever, and probably will ever, experience. Although the government has put strict guidelines in place to reduce the spread of COVID-19, there are still some things you can do to help support your local businesses.
Restaurants and bars may be shut, but many are still offering a takeaway service. Several bars are providing take home drink bundles and many eateries are delivering their delicious menus right to your door.
In Chichester, we are lucky to have an amazing collection of independent shops. Although larger chain stores are likely to survive this crisis, it is the small independent businesses that are suffering and may not make it through. Although stores have had to close their doors in order to help reduce the spread of Coronavirus, many are still offering a delivery service. The best way to keep in the know about what is on offer is to follow and support Chichester’s independent stores on social media.
At the moment, it is hard to know what each day might bring. So, if you are in need of a present or treat for yourself and unsure what to get in the current climate, why not opt for one of our Chichester Gift Cards? The gift card is accepted in more than 140 Chichester stores (a full list can be found here) and it is a great way to ensure that the money you spend will remain in the local economy.
